Colour Of Dastaar/Dhumalla

Recommended Posts

Gurfateh ji,

I am looking for the really deep blue that Nihung Singh's wear.

I buy dastaars online (UK) but the colour fades quick and two dastaars are never the same shade when newly ordered.

I came across an online store in Panjab with the colour 'tohra'. The pic is a deep blue but pics are pics.

Has anyone heard of this shade of blue?

I was gifted the blue I want/talking about (really deep blue almost purple tint) years ago and use it as a keski. The colour hasn't faded in 7 years of use and washing (f74 malmal).

Anyone help?

Thank you ji

Akaal!

you could buy uncoloured bolt and dye it to your dastar colour using fast dyes made out here in the west, some even can even be done in the washing machine

"Tohra" is just a shorthand that some shopkeepers (and some turban-wearers) use to describe the color of turban that the longtime President of the SGPC, Gurcharan Singh Tohra, used to wear. Something like this:

Avtar Singh (Makker) and other old-time Akali Dal members wore the same color.

What SGPC and their sevadaars wear is Royal Blue (Bright Blue).

Traditional Khalsa Blue has been Navy Blue (Dark Blue/ਸੁਰਮਈ).
